I had the very same thing happen, except in my case the tanks began leaking a few weeks after refilling 4, 1lb. tanks. Stupidly, I had them stored in my kitchen pantry, and one day I came home to a house smelling of propane. Thankfully nothing worse happened, but I stopped refilling the single-use tanks and purchased the Flame King tanks.
BTW, I had used one of those adapters to refill Coleman tanks for years, without a problem... I guess I was lucky.
